I suppose some of you read my Tales of a Minimum Wage Slave. The situation was somewhat resolved.
I got ALL my union dues back, the union sent them back.
I never got paid for those two hours of training though. The woman that lied to me about it is involved in another scandal, of sorts, at the same store. Story was reported in the Brooklyn Skyline.
A couple got caught in the elevator for 20 minutes and all they offered was a replacement of spoiled goods, and a whole $10 gift certificate. It’s one thing to be a cheap bastard with your employees (and perhaps if you weren’t, they’d be nicer to customers), but when your customers are stuck in your elevator and treated badly by your employees? They should have gotten their entire order for free. Plus it’s been miserable out, so sticky and hot, it had to be much worse than getting stuck in the winter. The elevator is not quite IN the building, so the weather DOES make a difference.
So glad I left that place.
